A group of eight golfers travelled from Manchester to Orlando in April. We needed a place to stay and a venue for golf. Bay Hill was fabulous and we even got to meet Arnold! The course was challenging but playable. The staff were extremely helpful, and friendly. While it was costly - it was not excessive for an iconic venue.... More

We spent a very enjoyable 3 days at the Lodge. The staff were very attentive and efficient. The golf was challenging, but not overly so. The room was a bit dated and we had a very uncomfortable bed, which I think had seen its fair share of guests, but otherwise adequate. The food was very good, but not outstanding, as... More

A group of 8 of us stayed and played here in late April, the whole experience was first class and everything we'd hoped it would be. The welcome we received was excellent and friendly, the rooms superb, breakfast one of the best I've had and the golf course as you can imagine is first rate. Brilliant two days had by... More

We went from Boca to Orlando for a father-son week-end of golf. We played Shingle Creek Saturday afternoon and went to Bay Hill for the evening and a 7:50 a.m.tee time on the Bay Hill Championship Course. Bay Hill was the high point of the trip--tee times every 10 minutes so there's no waiting on every shot or someone hitting... More

What a great resort. Very classy and with a classic old time feel. It screams 70's but in the best way possible. It is completely updated and very formal. Mr. Palmer does not allow hats in the clubhouse or inside areas. Pants and collared shirts at dinner (at the least) but a jacket would be better. In this day and... More

My husband and I returned to Bay Hill after many years. It was still warm and welcoming. The rooms are cosy and the building is very well kept. The food was very good. Sort of well done comfort food. The course was in great shape. Arnold Palmer himself was there to see us off on the first tee which was... More

We only stayed for one night specifically so my husband could play the course, unless you know a member you. An not play as a guest. The hotel has a degree of old world charm, a little niggle for me was there was no tea / coffee available in the room, we had cocktails in the bar before going to... More

I'll start by saying I'm a member of a Travel Writers Association. It's my job to review hotels, golf courses and restaurants. There is something special about this place! For an avid golfer, this should be on your bucket list. When you are a guest at the Lodge, you are given a sense of belonging to one of the finest... More

It offers all the amenities of a Country Club with several restaurants, a spa, pool, tennis AND the opportunity to meet Mr. Palmer. My wife & I are avid golfers and we loved the atmosphere.
